For the final installment of our Sense of Place feature, we invite Marshall Crenshaw to the World Cafe. The singer-songwriter and guitarist grew up within the cultural vortex of Detroit, and returns often to the city for the annual Concert of Colors.

Crenshaw is unsurprisingly an avid fan of music, and has become somewhat of a historian. His love for the art form makes him the perfect person to present listeners with five songs from Detroit's music history that those outside of the city have likely never heard before. The musician also talks with host David Dye about the eccentric R&B artist and producer Andre Williams and plays a few of Williams' songs.
